The week ahead

This Monday in Parliament Kerry will be attending a PLP hustings with all three declared candidates for the Labour Party leadership. She then has a question on the Order Paper for Communities and Local Government questions, on homelessness. Questions will be followed by a Home Office statement on the attack in Nice, and then Theresa May/ Jeremy Corbyn will open a debate on maintaining Britain’s independent nuclear deterrent (Trident). Kerry will also be attending a food waste event hosted by Asda and the University of Leeds.

On Tuesday Kerry is hosting an event to mark International Year of the Pulses, with the British Edible Pulse Association. She has a topical question at Treasury questions, which will be followed by the Second Reading of the Higher Education Bill. Kerry will also be attending a reception hosted by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.

On Wednesday Theresa May has her first outing at PMQs. Kerry will be taking part in the final meeting of the Environmental Audit Committee before recess, and also attending the All-Party Group on Hunger’s AGM.

On Thursday she will be speaking in a backbench business debate on snares, and in the evening will be on the panel for ‘People, Planet and Politics: Any Questions’, chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby, before returning to Bristol for her usual Friday surgery and other meetings with constituents. She will also be meeting with young entrepreneurs taking part in the StartUp Britain Bus Tour.

Note: Parliament is in recess from Thursday 21st July until Monday 5th September.
